    Default [Review] DoNotDisturb - Want A Break From All Those Notifications?


    You’re laying down comfortably on your bed, about to fall asleep – all of a sudden a notification fires off on your iPhone, which is laying on the nightstand next to your bed and disrupts you from dozing off. Does this sound familiar? It happens all too often to several people. Are you about to delete some of your Facebook friends because they keep commenting back and forth on your photo and keep blowing up your iPhone with notifications? Don’t! – At least not yet. There’s a better way to deal with this situation than becoming friendless on Facebook.

    If you want peace and quiet at night when you’re sleeping or you don’t want to be bothered when you are doing something important, then Rudolf Lichtner has a nice free jailbreak tweak for you, dubbed DoNotDisturb.

    DoNotDisturb is basically a hybrid between a jailbreak tweak and a Notification Center widget. In all irony, even though the “widget” is called a widget, it has more to do with notifications than it does with being a widget. The widget basically has a switch on it, as shown above, for enabling and disabling DoNotDisturb. When disabled, you will receive notifications as usual. When enabled, all notifications will be suppressed to so you can have some peace and quiet.

    After installing DoNotDisturb from Cydia, you will need to navigate to your Notifications preferences pane from the Settings application and drag the DoNotDisturb widget into Notification Center to enable the widget. You can disable the widget at any time by dragging it out of Notification Center from this preferences pane.

    The little widget from Notification Center is so simple that it looks pretty good being there. That being said, it is decent from an appearance point of view. Functionally, the tweak works great, suppressing all notifications until you disable the tweak again. Banners and sounds will not appear or be heard, however Notification Center and icon badges will continue to stack your notifications. The good news is that the screen will not light up while idled on your nightstand!

    If you're tired of obtrusive notifications, but you don't want to limit your internet access by entering Airplane Mode, then be sure to give this free jailbreak tweak a try!

    does this include text messages as well? and does the alarm override this just like it would override silent mode?

    It prevents all Notifications from annoying the User (;
    This Tweak has nothing to do with Silent Mode, so obviously Alarm overrides it.

    I would assume it would suppress any notification at all that would show up in notification center. Only way to tell is to test it yourself! I might try this out

    Thanks Rudolf, so long as this works and blocks all notifications this is exactly what I need. When you turn it off, will all notifications you blocked come in?

    They will be in the Notification Center, but there won't be any new Banners popping up 1000 times.

    would be great if a SB Settings toggle could be created to allow this to be automatically enabled/disabled at specific times of day.

    Rhmjr mentioned this, but I second it - is there any chance this could be added as a toggle for SB Profiles/etc so we can have this fire at specific times? That would be a dream. I'd totally pay for that!!

    This need a scheduling function (native or hook). I.e. "Activate @ 9:00PM, Disable @ 8:00AM...

    Downloading and testing now. This is great...I always get woken up by buzzing from my phone but also use it as an Alarm Clock so silent mode doesn't work since the phone will still buzz for notifications...if I turn vibrate off then I might miss my alarm clock altogether.

    I installed it and removed it , because the size on the notification center is too big. And there is no way to adjust it. But then it began.... 2 blank icons ( App store & Cydia ) , iPod ( from the iPhone 4s ) function gone, the phone start ringing aloud with headphones plugged in, no more blue tooth connection with the car and so on. Disturbed ? Very, this smells like restore in the morning. So you know.

    This is probably because you might use a diffent Cydia app for notifications. Mail Enhancer by any chance?
    Also does not work with PushTone or BiteSMS

    If you go to notifications in Settings you can move the DoNotDisturb row to the Bottom. that way it can stay out of your way
